Adding depth and volume
to my neck and chin - previously smooth and slender.
It's challenging to see yourself in your mind's eye as the youthful young woman
you once were,
only to continue to be greeted by an older woman in the mirror.
There's still beauty there;
but, veils of wisdom and time have carved their memories into your smile and your eyes.
The spark of surprise and the blush of anticipation
can be found somewear in the valleys of wear.
Oh, how I miss those pristine fairways.
